The benchmarks for transition have been developed with young people, parents and professionals with the aim of improving transitional care for young people and enabling the sharing of best practice between services. The benchmarks offer an example of a ‘practice guide’ to support transitional care.
The benchmarks consist of eight factors which focus on achieving the overall outcome, ‘young people and their parents/carers experience timely and effective transition’. The factors include: 1) moving to manage a health condition as an adult, 2) support for gradual transition, 3) co-ordinated child and adult teams, 4) services ‘young people friendly, 5) written documentation, 6) parents, 7) assessment of ‘readiness’ and 8) involvement of the GP. Each of the eight factors has a statement of best practice and poor practice and a list of associated indicators (examples) of best practice.
